“Her Happy Place”, by Stephanie Buice.
My niece Kimberly is such a cutie pie and adores both her parents. It's hard to tell if she's a Daddy's Girl or Momma's but I do know that it's very easy to tell that she is loved and she knows it. This is one of my favorite pictures of her and her mom, and I love how the colors in the Tiny Tots collection just added to the feeling of warmth and happiness. One of the things I like most about this collection is how it can be used for girl or boy pages and cards. Just an all-around wonderful line.

“Little Man”, by Becki Adams.
The Tiny Tots collection is not only great for toddlers but for preschool aged children too. I used it do document a few of my sons favorite things on his 5th birthday. I created 2 columns on the background and made them both come together with the title, photo, and embellishments.

“#LoveYou Rocky”, by Wendy Antenucci.
Blue Fishies, totally! I knew I had these pictures of my son in his blue outfit at the beach and so my layout was born. I grabbed the #LoveYou card and the boat card because I wanted to build my layout just about loving this adorable kid of ours. To match my pictures I used red, green, and blue and to give a little bit of space for your eyes to rest I added in the white alphabet paper. The flashcards are not only cute, but so useful for layering and achieving little bits of color here and there. The white heart, the alphabet stickers, and the little tag form a triangle of white surrounding my picture and pulling your eyes inward. I love the colorful stripe paper and used it to rest my design on along with the red scalloped sticker border. I even managed to squeeze in some pink hearts on a boy layout!

“Lucas” Name Book, by Laurie Schmidlin.
As soon as I saw the flashcards included in this adorable new collection, I immediately thought of making a "name book" for my 9 month old son! Lucas loves books and I cannot wait to start reading this to him! He also loves to put everything he touches in his mouth, so I made sure to laminate each little page. The little book was very easy to assemble. I selected the flashcards that spelled his name and adhered them to some heavy cardstock. For added color, I adhered coordinating papers to the backs of each flashcard page. Finally, I decorated the front and back pages with a couple of Paper Pieces, stickers, and Alpha stickers!
